    Re: Official 2007 Changes

    The 6-spd is a very nice improvement (albeit expected), and that Platinum package sounds interesting...though I don't get the idea of unique light purple color for that package (as well as black). I guess they're just trying to be unique, or maybe go back to the look the '04 Neiman Marcus models had, but purple still comes off as odd. I imagine most Platinums will be black, anyway.

    Besides that, seems decent and at least enough to keep it slightly freshened.

    What does burl accents mean and is the trim still black? Also, are the new wheel only with platinum package (why is it listed twice?)

    Also who wants purple?????? What are they thinking. Navy, pewter, white, would be great but Purple?? I guess you need to see it.

    Re: Official 2007 Changes

    The Platinum package has a slightly different interior color and also unique wood trim...hence, I think, what the burl accents refers to.

    The color sample I posted is the same for both interior colors because that's what GM posted...but they shouldn't be the same (just a simple mix-up in the sample pic).

    And yes, those new wheels are only for the Platinum model.

    For such an expensive luxury convertible, the lack of color choices is UNBELIEVABLE...why they can't even offer something as simple, yet elegant, as white is beyond me. But you do get purple...
